Police have launched a probe into an arson attack on the rabbinical council offices in Nesher, near Haifa, in the early hours of Tuesday morning.
Four crews from the Haifa district Fire and Rescue Service went to the scene and managed to extinguish the blaze but not before extensive damage was caused to files and office equipment.
A fire inspector determined that the blaze was started deliberately and police were informed.
Files of people getting married or divorced were among those destroyed in the blaze.
